    About “André Bazin François Truffaut

    • André Bazin François Truffaut

      An influential film critic and theorist, Andr Bazin was the founder of the reknowned and pioneering film journal, Cahiers du cin ma.Bazin was a major force in post World War II film studies and criticism In addition to editing Cahiers until his death, a four volume collection of his writings was published posthumously from 1958 to 1962 and titled Qu est ce que le cin ma What is Cinema Two of these volumes were translated into English in the late 1960s and 1970s and became mainstays of film courses in the US and England.Bazin argued for films that depicted what he saw as objective reality such as documentaries and films of the Italian neorealism school and directors who made themselves invisible such as Howard Hawks He advocated the use of deep focus Orson Welles , wide shots Jean Renoir and the shot in depth , and preferred what he referred to as true continuity through mise en sc ne over experiments in editing and visual effects This placed him in opposition to film theory of the 1920s and 1930s which emphasized how the cinema can manipulate reality The concentration on objective reality, deep focus, and lack of montage are linked to Bazin s belief that the interpretation of a film or scene should be left to the spectator.Bazin believed that a film should represent a director s personal vision, rooted in the spiritual beliefs known as personalism These ideas would have a pivotal importance on the development of the auteur theory, the manifesto for which was Fran ois Truffaut s 1954 Cahiers article A Certain Tendency of the French Cinema Bazin also is known as a proponent of appreciative criticism, wherein only critics who like a film can write a review of it, thus encouraging constructive criticism.In 2009, in response to widespread dissatisfaction with existing English translations of Bazin s writings, the Montreal publisher caboose brought out a new translation of selected essays from What is Cinema This was also the first and to date only corrected edition of Bazin s writings in any language.

    • Andre Bazin was one of the great fuels that started the French New Wave in cinema. Here he discusses Bunuel among others - and maybe the first (no, the Surrealist writers on cinema were the first!) to comment on the nature of 'cruelty' between audience and filmmakers.

    • bunuel dreamt of "doing nothing," dreyer sought to capture "the ambiguity of death," hitchcock wanted to "achieve the quality of imperfection" and kurosawa was second to a director i haven't even head of, mizoguchi. hitchcock seemded to pose an interesting "paradox" for bazin: it was easy to make an 'artistic' film but the real difficulty lay in making a GOOD COMMERCIAL film. truffaut merely introducing a book by bazin; was godard a good writer at all?



    • I was intrigued by the title and directors discussed by Andre Bazin in his book The Cinema Of Cruelty: from Bunuel to Hitchcock (1975). It is edited with an introduction by critic and film maker Francious Truffant. Here Bazin gives critical observations on a number of films by the directors listed in the book without resorting too much to story summary or plot. He inspires me to see more of the films by these directors. The title leaves out director Eric von Stromheim, Car Theodor Dreyer, Presto [...]
